The papers written by Prof V. Upadhyaya, Prof. R. C. Pandey, Prof. S. R. Bhatta, Prof. Sanghsen Singh, Dr. B. M. Awasthi, Dr. B. R. Sharma and Dr. Harsh Kumar have enhanced the thematic value of the book. Particular philosophical systems have also come up for consideration in the papers of Dr. Chandrahasa Sharma, Dr. Ramakanta Shukla, Dr. Ramasuresh Pandey. Dr. Bhakti Srivastava, Dr. Lalita Kuppuswami, Dr. Vedawati Vaidik, Dr. Sudershan Kaushik, Dr. Dharma, Dr. Shashi Tewari and Dr. Shashi Prabha Kumar.

Foreword

There is a common belief that Indian Philosophy contains a dead stuff of knowledge, having no reference to contemporary life and society and that its speculations are nothing but day dreamings of certain scholars, who laid more emphasis on life beyond death than on this life itself. -This however, is far from truth, in as much as, Indian Philosophy contains substantial components of eternal truth, that have universal application and that are capable of conducting the man to the gateway of the good through the shady avenue of the beautiful, enabling him thereby, to savour the delight of his expanded self.

With the rapid advancement of scientific and technological investigations the man has been .blessed with creature comforts, but at the same time there has been a starvation of the spirit and sickening of the soul resulting in unbalanced growth of human personality. It is for this reason that there has been awakening in regard to the spirit, and the necessity for all round development of the man's spiritual personality, beginning from his body to soul has been acknowledged as the goal of human existence. It is precisely at this point that Indian Philosophy comes to the rescue of the modern man by projecting before him the means through employment of which he can expand the boundaries of the ego, as also by opening before him the lockgates of the perennial stream of spirituality . Speculations of Indian Philosophy, therefore, have become more relevant than they were before, particularly in the context of the importance assigned to limited wordly existence, with all its exigencies as a result of extention of benefits and comforts by scientific and technological advancements. It is refreshing to note that Dr. Shashiprabha Kumar of Maitreyee College of the University of Delhi could envisage this real problem of the modern man and could organise a Seminar on 'Relevance of Indian Philosophy In Modern Context' inviting all the top experts on Indian Philosophy to present their rich thoughts on the subject.

The papers cover a wide spectrum ranging from the gradual ascent of knowledge till it reaches the state of identity of the individual man as projected by Sri Kireet Joshi in his Inaugural Address. Dr. Mandan Misra has highlighted the importance of the spiritual aspect of Indian Philosophy. It is gratifying to note that Prof. R.C. Pandey, Deptt. of Philosophy, Univ. of Delhi, gave the keynote Address. Dr. Vacaspati Upadhyaya, whose penetration into original texts of all the systems of philosophy is deep and astounding, spares no pains to establish the relevance of the Mimamsa system of philosophy, which is usually regarded as outdated even by scholars belonging to the area themselves.

Other philosophical systems have also come up for consideration and while Dr. Shashiprabha Kumar projects the relevance of Nyaya - Vaisesika systems, Dr. Chandrahas Sharma proves the relevance of yoga school of Philosophy, Dr. Ramakanta Shukla defends the relevance of the Jaina system and Dr. Vedwati Vaidi that of Samkara's thoughts. The Buddhistic Philosophy has been discussed by Prof. Sanghsen Singh, while Dr. Bhakti Srivastava reviews the system of Lokayata. The systems of yoga and Tantra have equally come up for consideration in the paper of Dr. Ram Suresh Pandey. The perennial philosophy of the Vedas, Upanisads & the Bhagawadgita is re-revealed by the papers of Dr. S. Tewari, Dr. B.R. Sharma and Dr. Dharma respectively. Dr. Lalita Kuppuswami proves the relevance of Bhakti and Dr. Sudershan Kaushik evaluates the importance of Sanskrit Grammar in modern age. The relevance of selected concepts as liberation and God is presented by Dr. M.C. Bharatiya and B. Tanaji Acharya.

The papers written by Prof. S. R. Bhatt, Dr. Harsh Kumar, Dr. Brahmamitra Awasthi, Dr. Avanir.dra Kumar and Dr. S. Punjani have enhanced the thematic value of the deliberations made in the seminar. Dr. K.K. Misra, while summing up the proceedings in his Presidential Address lays emphasis on the underlying fundamental unity of 'all the systems of Indian Philosophy. All the papers are marked with freshness of thought and new sparks of knowledge and each is capable of being regarded as a grand contribution to the stock of human knowledge.

Maitreyee, the great Indian wisdom seeker represents the most inquisitive student which humanity has ever witnessed and her enquiries to Yajnavalkya have presented to the humanity the loftiest wisdom, which human mind can conceive of. It is quite in the fitness of things that an Institution named after the greatest truth seeker Maitreyee has selected this profound topic as the subject of its Seminar and has been able to persuade so many experts in their own fields to the seminar. I congratulate the College, particularly the convenor of the seminar, Dr. Mrs. Shashiprabha Kumar, Senior lecturer of the ColIege and put on record my deep appreciation of the quality of all the papers incorporated in the volume, which is in the process of being edited by the distinguished editor.

With these words I take great pleasure in extending a warm- welcome to the volume in the area of Indological studies.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
